I am a Special Education teacher who works with pre-K through grade 3 students. My students struggle with reading, writing, and/or math. They were making great gains this school year, but the pandemic and social distance protocols are hindering their opportunities to continue growing as learners.
During these challenging times, I have tried to keep the students engaged by using mulitple interactive websites.
My students and I participate three times a week in Zoom meetings to reinforce and learn new skills. Even though we use the whiteboard accessed through Zoom, it can be difficult sharing all parts of the lesson and it would be easier if I could use chart paper and an easily accessible whiteboard. Despite this obstacle, my students are excited to participate and are willing to try new things.
With the sudden school closure, I did not bring home all the essential teaching tools I need to teach my students. Working from home has proven to be difficult because my students and I are lacking many educational tools such as a whiteboard, dry erase markers, and chart paper.
In a world where distance learning has taken over, a white board has proven to be an essential item when it comes to delivering instruction.
The whiteboard easel and chart paper included in this project would serve as tools that I can use during Zoom meetings to go over material easily and display anchor charts. I will also be able to use these items in the future when working with small groups.
